Maikel Mesa and Iker Guarrotxena put the home side 2-0 up within 34 minutes to leave Mallorca with a mountain to climb.

Juan Emmanuel Culio’s strike pulled the visitors closer, but Dejan Lekic’s 87th minute equaliser was too little too late.

Mallorca lie four points from safety with one game remaining, and will now pla in Segunda B for the first time since the 1980-81 season.

Owner Robert Sarver bought the club last season, but is now facing tough questions after Mallorca’s embarrassing fall from grace
